Hiraizumi Tours

Hiraizumi Tours

Hiraizumi was once the home of the powerful Northern Fujiwara Clan and rivaled Kyoto as a city during the Heian Period.

In 2011 Hiraizumi (平泉) was inscribed as one of Japan’s World Heritage sites because of its representation of the Buddhist teachings of Amida. The city is located within the Iwate Prefecture of the northeastern region of Tohoku. Hiraizumi is a reflection of a world centered on peace and harmony. It was once part of the ancient Mutsu Province. It was also the place where the Northern Fujiwara Branch thrived for nearly 100 years. For those 100 years Hiraizumi was in a Golden age of economic and political grandeur. Also it served as the capital of Oshu. During the late Heian Period (794-1185) it had rivaled Kyoto in culture and political power.

Chusonji is a Buddhist temple located in Hiraizumi and is one of the most important structures related to Buddhism in Japan. The temple is one of two remaining religious sites from the 12th century in Hiraizumi. It is said that the temple was founded in 850 by Ennin of the Tendai Sect of Buddhism, but others have disputed that the temple was founded by Kiyohira of the Northern Fujiwara Branch. Chusonji as well as Motsuji were meant to be places of peace in a violent era. He built Chusonji on top of Mount Kanzan as it was the center of the Mutsu Province at the time. The most notable structure in Chusonji is the Konjikido. It is a building covered in gold leaf and houses over 3,000 national treasures. Today the hall is protected from the elements by a concrete structure. Geibikei Gorge is located to the west of Ichinoseki and is one of the 100 best landscapes of Japan. The gorge is 2 km long with limestone cliffs over 50 meters tall. The name comes from Geibi, which translates to lion nose. There is a formation of limestone at the end of the gorge that resembles a lion’s nose.
